Caption: UMBILICAL HERNIA Photo essay in a hospital in Congo (Chain of Hope). Girl with a umbilical hernia. The umbilical hernia corresponds to a protuberance from a portion of the intestine through the abdominal wall, at the level of the nostril. It is often due to a weakness of the muscles of the abdominal wall. The umbilical hernia is frequent among African children, probably from malnutrition.
